About this book

A chronology of life during the last six hundred million years of earth history.
`There are few monographs like this, in which an overview is provided of the history of life, and how the whole evolving system works. Vermeij delves into real natural history and integrates it with the sweep of evolution in the fossil record.' David Jablonski

With the impressive scope and rich synthesis of this work, the author has assumed the mantle of a provocative pundit of paleobiology.
